The conference ISC High Performance 2021 Digital will take place from 24 June to 2 July 2021 as an online event (https://www.isc-hpc.com/).

JSC, together with its partners in the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS) – HLRS in Stuttgart, and LRZ in Garching – will present its wide-ranging supercomputing activities at the virtual GCS booth (https://isc.gauss-centre.eu). Focus topics are the path to exascale with JSC's modular supercomputing architecture (MSA) concept, the steadily increasing importance of AI in HPC reflected, e.g. by the Helmholtz AI Cooperation Unit, and quantum computing technologies, where the growing Jülich UNified Infrastructure for Quantum computing (JUNIQ) will be presented.

JSC employees will furthermore contribute to the event with numerous talks and workshops. Some examples include: Martin Schultz’s invited talk entitled "Is bigger always better? Deep learning applications in air quality research"; Bernd Mohr’s "Introduction to HPC: Applications, Systems, and Programming Models"; and Christian Witzler’s talk in the "5th Workshop on In Situ Visualization" on "Including in situ visualization and analysis in PDI". Christian Feld, Markus Geimer, and Brian Wylie are co-organizing the tutorial "Hands‐on Practical Hybrid Parallel Application Performance Engineering" and Alan O'Cais will speak about "Maintaining a Modern Scientific Software Stack Made Easy with EasyBuild". Furthermore, there will be a one-to-one conversation between Kristel Michielsen (JSC) and Matthias Troyer (Microsoft) on "What is the early value in quantum computing?" on 1 July.
